Jacksonville Magazine opens its doors to interns from colleges near and far. Many past interns have gone on to work at a variety of publications, and a few members of the Jax Mag staff started out in the trenches as interns themselves. (Just kidding, we don’t have any trenches. They’re really more like ditches. Ditches dug by interns.)
Here are a few profiles of recent and current interns. If you’re interested in interning with us, please visit this page to get details on how to apply.
Fallon Mayer // Editorial Intern
Spring editorial intern Fallon Mayer is a senior at the University of North Florida majoring in mass communications journalism & production with a minor in photography. Born and raised in Florida, this is her third year residing in the Jacksonville area.
Her interest in photography led her to the creative and mysterious side of journalism after reading a biography on world-renowned photographer Dorothea Lange. Fallon has since then carried a strong appetite for hard news, global conflicts and documentary-style context in an effort to carry on the need for photojournalism.
When she isn’t in class reading up on the latest current events she’s out on the town visiting the antique stores and vintage shops in hopes for another vinyl to add to her collection. Fallon enjoys hiking and running through mountain trails, occasionally stopping to take a photograph of the scenery.
Expected to graduate in May, Fallon would like to continue her pursuit in journalism writing, eventually traveling and documenting for a news or magazine source.
Brianna Dillon // Editorial Intern
Spring editorial intern Brianna Dillon is a Junior at the University of North Florida studying Journalism. She is originally from Chicago, but has called Jacksonville her home for the last six years. A self-proclaimed military brat, she has traveled up and down most of the east coast, but longs to travel the rest of the world.
When she isn’t working, studying or interning, she’s probably sitting at her laptop scrolling through fashion and lifestyle blogs similar to her own. She admits to being a shop-o-holic and has a love/hate relationship with romantic comedies. She despises waking up before noon and has an unhealthy obsession with dying her hair.
Brianna has had an interest in writing since she was younger and her passion for it has only gotten stronger with age. Her goal is to one day become editor-in-chief of a newspaper or magazine.
